, 380 times they did it to obstruct president obama's agenda, and senate democrats i think are sick of this. senator tom harkin of iowa said on my radio show today without meaningful filibuster reform, it could be a rough second term for president obama. >> i said to obama one time we were in iowa, the night before the election, he was in iowa, the night before the election, i said to him, i said, look, i want some of your time after the election. he said sure, what about? filibuster. i said you get reelected, if you get reelected and we don't change the filibuster rules in the senate, you might as well take a four-year vacation, because you won't get anything done. >> senator harkin also told me about the so-called 41 rule that would require 41 republicans to vote in order to maintain a filibuster instead of requiring the majority party to find 60 votes to break one. folks, 60 votes, it isn't going to happen in the senate. not in this political climate. senator reid had included the 41 rule in his proposal, but politico reported late tonight he dropped the rule after talks with mcc

'll be joined by one of the democrat senators who signed that letter to president obama urging approval of the keystone pipeline. he will be here ten past ten eastern this morning, this program. to the big board, close to an all-time record high. the dow is now at 13,834 #, up 55 points. to nicole, apple's numbers disappoint, and, boy, is that stock taking a downturn, go. >> oh, big time, down almost 10% right now at $463. out all the people who paid $700 for apple with high hopes of the iphone 5 and apple tv and the next latest product to see it disappoint. >> the soft story of the day, but another good one, surprise profit at netflix. >> right. this one you could faint, i mean, really, it's something to talk about here. adding the subscribers, they've been adding to the content, and while you can't get the latest, hottest movie on netflix, nobody cares. a lot of people do complain about that, but they have everything else and stocks included at 40%. >> that is the new york stock exchange rally again. now to davos, switzerland. liz with jamie dimon. liz? >> thank you, we appreciate it.

. >> senator kerry, thanks for coming today and your testimony. i agree with candidate barack obama who said in 2007 that the president doesn't have the power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack. do you agree with candidate barack obama or do you agree with president obama who took us to war in libya without congressional authority unilaterally? >> senator paul, one of the things this committee has spent a lot of time is on the war powers act which i support. and i believe in congressional authority to go to war. i have argued that on occasion with respect to some things here, but there are occasions which i have supported where a president of the united states has to make a decision immediately and implement that decision, execute on it immediately. i supported ronald reagan when he sent troops into grenada and i supported president bush when he sent troops into panama and i supported president clinton when he did what needed to be done in bosnia and kosovo and so forth. i think the president behaved in that tradition. >> i would argue that the constitution ha
's an odd turn-around, two years ago we were hearing this from senate minority leader republican mitch mcconnell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? wil
you will find a lot of the senators in red states in louisiana, arkansas, south dakota, who are going to try to distance themselves from what president obama said in this speech because they're worried about their elections. i think that in the center of the country and the red states where these senators are running they don't think that the president's message works and they're going to try to move themselves away from that because they're worried about it. they're worried about all these -- >> we're talking about the majority of the country though. if the majority is with the president, is he too liberal? that's what i'm asking. you can call the guy too left when he's right where the middle is? how can you keep saying that? it's the only question i want to put to you. if more than 50% support equality of marriage, more than 50% support a woman's right to choose, if more than 50% awith him on guns a s ans and foreign how can you call that the far left? >> let me put it this way, the fact of the matter is this is going to be politically very problematic for harry r50ed because for th
. you know, back in '06 i was working to elect our congressman from vermont, and a nice young senator came through and did a talk for us, and i remember thinking, my god, i have met the leader that i've been waiting for all my life. and so that when president obama announced that he was running for election, i vowed that i would do everything in my power to get him elected and then if, god willing, we had a second term, i would work with him the second term as hard as i could. um, so i am so incredibly proud that he has made it begun as our president -- again as our president, our leader. i have three children, and for all the children it was extremely important for me that we have this kind of visioning going forward for our cup. for our country. after an intense and trying and exhausting campaign that we just endured, um, and as i come to the end of my tenure in this position that i've really enjoyed so much primarily because i've met such wonderful people, i feel so grateful that i am a democrat -- [applause] because we have the nicest -- [applause] strongest, people working with u
